Time goes by...

Hi all! Life has been getting a bit too much for me again lately and so there has been no sewing here lately. And funnily enough, once I had gotten out of the habit, I've had real problems picking it up again. Every time I tried to put some stuff together I kept doubting my pattern/fabric/colour choice and it would go no further. Frustrating stuff! However last weekend I decided to make an apron for a soon-to-be sister-in-law's kitchen tea. The invite said "Let's make A a domestic goddess", so I thought I would make it a bit 1950's retro..when the world was full of domestic goddesses. So I made this to put in a present with some blue teatowels and tray. Looked quite cute all together really.
The pattern is Flirty Skirty Apron by the Apron Lady Designs. You should have seen how much fabric I had pulled out before I chose these two. Actually these were my second choice as I originally had some great pears/apples fabric..but managed to have all the apples and pears upside down! Darn it! Have a good week! Ps. Still looking for answers on how to get paragraphs to happen in my blogposts. They are there when I type, but when I type publish they disappear..bit like my waistline....(that's my daughter in the pic!)
